Hey! I'm Joe. After a semseter as an exchange student in emester in Kingston, Canada, I just came to Iceland and think I'll stay here for a while. I like to bicycle around and smile to strangers in the streets. I'm a bit introverted, very independent, but I love to share stories over coffee, tea, beer or veggie food.
Trying to figure out if I'm able to live contentful - or at least feeling like I'm contributing to something - with as little money as possible in the city center of Oslo - or wherever a train or a hitck-hiking can take me. Inspired by green, socialist, anarchist, queer thoughts, intersectional feminism and swimming in the ocean. Right now I am studying gender and criminology, but tomorrow my plans might have changed.
Still, as Jorge Luis Borges,“I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities I have visited.”
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've surfed and hosted a few times, and many of the experiences have made my heart and mind grow. I'd love to host and surf more!
I like to swim in the ocean, climb roofs, to sleep on the grass or deep into the forest, dumpsterdive, sing, think, live without money and time, travel, eat a lot of fruits, play cards and board games, visit exhibitions, underground/avant garde theaters and cinemas, feeling contact with a stranger, learn, drink beer and wine, get new perspectives, walking in the mountains, going to music festivals and intimate concerts, sharing, discuss politics, play video games, read, hitch-hike, afternoon naps, sitting up all night, write, sleep, wild animals and birds, laugh, vinyls, explore the world and the human mind, street art, flea markets, giving away, trading.
I also love to be alone.
